[PATCH] leds: Ensure hardware blinking turns off when requested
Posted by Eddie James 1 month ago
If an LED is blinking through the hardware and the trigger is deactivated,
the driver will set the brightness to 0 to disable blinking. However, if
the LED driver doesn't support non-blocking operations, the request for
setting brightness to 0 will get queued. Then if a user requests a new
non-zero brightness before the request for 0 brightness is executed, the
LED blinking will not get disabled since the brightness will simply be
updated.
Fix this by flushing the workqueue before updating the requested
brightness.

Fixes: 4d71a4a12b13 ("leds: Add support for setting brightness in a synchronous way")
